Foxford

Foxford is situated on the banks of the river Moy, and is famous for being the home of blankets, rugs and fine tweeds. The Woollen Mills were founded by a Sister of Charity Mother Agnes Morrogh Bernard, in order to stem the flow of emmigration out of the area.

There is a visitor centre which tells the story of the mills and tours are available in European languages also. The Foxford Way is a long distance marked walking route which covers a distance of 86km. The walk covers mountains, boglands, meadows, river banks and lake shores.
